       First of all, I would like to share with you what I have done yesterday, as it was a public holiday in Malta. 

            In the morning I went to the beach with my parents and now my skin is BURNING! AHHHH. The irony is that I did not spend time a lot of time in the sun, only during I was swimming because when I was not swimming I was under an umbrella. The sun is getting hotter every Summer that passes, I must say. 
            Then in the evening I went to some discos/clubs in Paceville with my friends. We went to an open bar at only 15 euros. Which I think it's really worth it, as many teenagers drink a lot of alcohol. Last night, on the other hand I did not drink too much, as in the morning I had to wake up early because I had my last exam of my Make up course (which mainly this blog is supposed to be about). 

This is what I wore yesterday. Both the dress and the purse/handbag are from New Look. From the photo you can see how much burnt I am :( haha.

Anyways, today I had my Final Make up Exam the category was Wedding Morning. I did great with my work and my teacher was really happy with the look I created. Now on Monday I have to meet up with my teacher to get and sign the certificate. I am really excited because now I can work with it :D. Underneath you'll find some photos of me during the exam, hope you like them (:

 That's all for today. I may be missing a few days as tomorrow I am going to babysit my cousins and then sleep at their home, so maybe my next blog would be on Sunday or Monday. Until then,

             For starters, I'd like to share with you that today I Passed my driving theory exam and therefore I am half way there to get my license :D Yayyyy!

          Anyways, today this blog is about Toffee and in a few you'll know what I am talking about... Last month in the beginning of May, in my home town, the Local Council organised a pet show and pet competition in the ground. As my dad wanted to enter our lovely pup, Jack, in the pet competition, I went to show my support (even though this competition was nothing professional - I mean all the dogs that took part were untrained - this was the main  aim for this competition to give an opportunity for the untrained dogs to take part in a competition). 

          Anyways, not to make a short story long, I passed near some cages and I could not not stop and stare at those small fluffy bunnies! They were so CUTE that I wanted one and for a change, I could not resist not buying one. 

          Because it has the colour of toffee and most probably it is a female as when I bought it Toffee was still young to define if it's a female or a male so I decided to name it Toffee as it is a unisex name. When I bought it, it was only 1 month old! Now Toffee's soon going to be 3 months! They grow too quickly :( haha

Left: Jack first time coming home (4 weeks old)
Right: Jack nowadays (:

Left: Toffee 1 month old
Centre & Right: 3 months old 

               That's all for today.

                                        Hi everyone,   
          Every Wednesday evening between 6.30pm and 7.30pm I leave it for some Zumba. Zumba is like dancing, aerobics and exercising at the same time. Doing Zumba you'll burn between 700 to 1000 calories depending on how fast your rhythm is and how frequently you do it. 
         The first time I heard about Zumba was through my friend. Every week he repeated how good it was and telling me that I should start to go and I decided to give it a go last week. I can tell you an hour of Zumba leaves you out of breath but it's worth every second because it is both enjoyable and helps to keep you fit. 

                   Anyways this is what I wore to Zumba today.

Both top and 3 quarters were bought from Terranova by me.

          Apart from that, today I bought a cute bikini for summer, from my friend's shop -Bijoux Toi and I am planning to wear on Sunday for my friend's pool party. I had already seen this bikini last week when I went to buy a present for one of my friend's birthday but today when I woke up I could not resist not to go and buy it. 

        Hope you liked it as I love it and can't wait for Sunday to wear it.
